Kenyan socialite Vera Sidika has openly discussed the criticism she faced due to her large booty.

In a video shared online by Mpasho News, Vera Sidika revealed that she used to be afraid of her big booty because of constant public scrutiny. And why wouldn’t she draw attention? Her figure had suddenly changed and all of a sudden, Kenyans were being treated to scenes of a curvy lady with a huge nyash.

The mother of two added that while growing up, she wished to be skinny to avoid the public pressure. However, upon moving to the city, she began to appreciate herself as she was received positively.

In my life, I wanted to be a skinny girl because I used to be bullied a lot in school so I could cover myself and wear a big t-shirt, but when I came to Nairobi, everybody was like, ‘Have you seen that booty?’ That’s when I realized I had a nice body. People made me realize that I can actually use what I have to get what I want,” Vera Sidika shared.

It’s not just her curvy figure that she has invested in ‘remodelling’.

In October 2022, Vera disclosed that she had her teeth and bust redone for a whopping six thousand dollars (equivalent to Ksh. 777,000 at current rates).

All parts of me are me but I bought some part of me. You buy it, you own it. My hips and butt are real. I had a big butt way before I became famous. I wanted to be a bit more proportional,” Vera said.

“I got my boobs done at Beverly Hills and also got my teeth done. They are certified doctors. In case of anything you can sue them. You get your money’s worth. I got this done three four years ago. It cost me 6000 dollars.”

A quick online check shows that cosmetic surgery can be quite expensive. Procedures to alter one’s looks range between Sh200,000 and Sh300,000, with breast reconstruction costing between Sh220,000 and Sh350,000.

Lifting a drooping butt costs between Sh150,000 and Sh200,000, similar to the price for lifting thighs or conducting vaginoplasty and labiaplasty.

The least expensive cosmetic surgeries are liposuction, ranging from Sh90,000 to Sh220,000, and a brow lift, which costs between Sh100,000 and Sh200,000.
